Yeddo construction update
2:40PM September 08, 2020
We are excited to announce that Wintek powered by Tipmont has begun constructing a fiber-optic network in southern Fountain County. We refer to this area as our Yeddo fiber build. When completed, our fiber internet service will be available to 1,425 homes. We estimate beginning the first in-home installations in the first quarter of 2021.
The Yeddo build area is divided into 19 zones that follow geographical boundaries. To find your zone, enter your address here or view our zone map. The project entails over 145 miles of overhead construction, along with 18 miles of underground construction.
Tipmont crews, along with Kent Power, have started the fiber make-ready process of preparing the utility poles to support the fiber line. Our crews are replacing 110 utility poles with larger poles in the Yeddo build area to accommodate the new fiber lines. To date, crews have completed about 50% of the make-ready work.
In the next few weeks, we'll send out a postcard with details on mainline construction. During construction, work will primarily occur Monday through Saturday, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. Throughout the build, you will see representatives from Wintek powered by Tipmont and Reel Telecommunications, our fiber contractor. We understand construction can be a short-term inconvenience, but you can look forward to enjoying the shared benefits that state-of-the-art fiber service offers, such as increased home values and economic growth.
